keep your resolutions this year

Getting organized at the beginning of the year ranks right up there with losing weight when it comes to resolutions; the problem is that a lot of people lose the list by February!

So how can you stick to your resolution this year and really strive to get (and stay) organized? Here are 3 things to think about on your journey to organization:

1. Get a vision for your space. What is your ultimate goal?
Example: Do you want to eat at the kitchen table? How do they want a room to function?


2. Start small and break your long-term vision down into small chunks:

Example: Long Term: organize the kitchen…Tonight: organize one drawer… Tomorrow: organize under the sink.


3. Stay focused: If you goal is the kitchen, don’t worry about the piles of paper in the office and the clutter laundry room until you have the kitchen under control. Multi-tasking is one great asset of being a female but it can hinder our abilities to stay focused and get organized!


Try implementing these 3 steps in your next organizing project and see how quickly you accomplish your goal and vision. Try taking a before picture…and then an after picture. Make sure the “after” picture matches your original vision for the space and then reward yourself for a job well done!
